The Truth about Estrogen Based Cancers.
I have so many patient come in that have been diagnosed the breast cancer, from the age of 28- 65. The rise of this incident is insane. We put so much research into treatment but not prevention. I feel like broken record talking to my patient, so I decided to put down some important information that you can use.
First of all most estrogen based cancers are due to an excess of estrogen metabolites that can’t be released from the body. I tell all my patients that you have to poop everyday to remove waste from the food you have just eaten. Well, your cells and hormones have to do pretty much the same thing. When your hormones do their job, they will convert, and need to be expelled out. Your liver is the organ that does that job. These hormones travel through the blood and then process through the liver and then it goes out through our urine and fecal.
Where does the problem arise? It can be a two fold issue.
#1.If your liver is so full of other toxins such as: alcohol, heavy metals, chemicals, processed food, cigarettes, drugs, etc than the last thing it can do is filter those pesky hormones. So the hormones float in the blood, stop by the liver to be filtered out, but the liver says “NO ROOM HERE”. Now the hormones have to keep floating around the blood, but it starts to look for a place where they can stop and rest. This is how it gets deposited in breast, uterus, cervix, and fat in our bodies. Have you ever wanted to know why you have gained a lot of weight in the lower stomach and hips and can’t seem to get it off no matter what you do. That may be your first sign of excess estrogen storing in your fat.
#2. Estrogen may be going through your liver but for some reason you are consuming too much estrogen. This is called xenoestrogen. This is estrogen your body does not make but something you are exposed to. Once my patient go through cancer treatment, I sit down and talk to them about not only changing their diet to support their liver but also change products they use. Most people don’t know that the xenoestrogen come from:
- Plastic bottles
- Hair products: Shampoos, Conditioners, Hair Spray, Gels
- Face Creams
- Lotions/ sunscreens
- Protein Shakes
- Mattresses, furniture, foams
These products have fake estrogens or products when applied turn into fake/bad estrogens in the body. Now the are inundated with this excess estrogen and the liver can’t get rid of it as fast as we intake it.
PLASTIC: It is time to change what we put in and on our bodies. Stay away from anything plastic. I don’t even wrap my kids food in plastic. Did you know that mothers consume so much stuff in plastic PBB (such as heating your food in Tupperware) that they found traces in newborn babies. We don’t even give our kids a chance. Stay away from cooking your food in plastic, drinking out of plastic, and wrapping your food in plastic. When this plastic gets heated, it definitely transfers these estrogen like chemicals into your food and beverage.
CHEMICALS TO AVOID: The chemicals you want to avoid in hair products, shampoos, perfumes, face Creams, makeup, lotions, and soap I will list here.
- Bisphenol A
- 4-Methylbenzylidene camphor in sunscreens and lotions
- butylated hydroxyanisole, BHA
- Propyl gallate
- And many more that you can find on the website EWG.org
This is the number one thing I hate!!! We get young girls trained to start using this toxic substance at such and early age. So Anti mean “Stop” Perspirant is “perspiration”. Why do we want to stop from sweating? It is our number one detoxer. If you stop sweating then where are all those toxins going to go when it is trying to get out of the body. Could it possibly be the breast? Also most antiperspirants have aluminum in it. Aluminum is so toxic to the body. It is know to cause neurological conditions like ADD, ADHD, Dementia, and Neuropathies. So stop drinking out of Aluminum cans as well!!!!. I tell my patients to never ever stop the body from sweating but maybe help reduce the bacterial smell. Use organ and natural essential oil DEODERANTS. Use baking soda or even cornstarch powder (NEVER TALC, THIS HAS BEEN SHOWN TO CAUSE CANCER). There is nothing wrong with sweating, it is actually good! The skin is our largest organ and it is designed to help detox. So stop the anti sweat craze!
